Course Description

Psychologists seek to understand how the mind works and why people behave the way they do. They focus on the complexities of human behaviour, how development occurs, how personality forms, and how factors, like society and culture, affect behaviour. They also seek to provide strategies that can help people lead happier, healthier and more productive lives.

This prestigious course prepares you for a career in specialist fields, such as clinical psychology, clinical neuropsychology or organisational psychology. It involves three years of accredited undergraduate study, followed by an honours year in which you complete a research thesis and advanced coursework units. This enables you to apply for entry to a professional masters course focused on your career of choice.

In your third year, you'll have the opportunity to gain relevant workplace experience in a professional or community setting that's relevant to psychology.
